Gameplay and fun is on par with previous Lego video games, but the best part is the side missions, exploring Gotham City. Graphics are a quantum level above previous games. Lots of puzzles using Batman and Robins special abilities to climb skyscrapers, solving problems along the way - a vertigo-inducing experience in places. Falling doesn't hurt your character, but it feels like really falling. One memorable quest involves jumping off a skyscraper to glide all the way across a park to your goal.
Lots of different challenges - As well as puzzles, you can race planes, helicopters, boats and cars. Or just fly around looking at the scenery. And smash stuff up :-)
I feel it's more child-friendly as there's really no consequence to "dying" - You just lose a few studs and respawn in the same place as you "died".
It misses an established plot to follow and therefore meanders. Plus without the plot queues it is easy to get a bit lost. After finishing the game and only being 21% complete I felt it was going to be a bit of a drag to finish the game - previously I've found it fun. The issue is that you then have to keep replaying the game as it is not apparent which characters are where and how you find and unlock them. This makes the game a little tedious. Plus not knowing all the minor Marvel characters there are a lot of 'rules' to remember.
After installing it, turns out that it doesn't run without the CD... a 2014 game. You can buy the Steam version, when it's on sale and you wont need to insert the CD evert time you want to play the game, which is hugely inconvenient. I'll see if I can download a cracked executable online to overcome this though.
Ok, so that little annoyance aside, I have 2 controllers - an Xbox 360 controller and an Acme Gamepad. The 360 works perfectly fine, but the Acme doesn't get recognized at all (I can't even map the buttons, because the game has decided that it is a separate controller, but for some reason doesn't recognize any of its clicks). This is incredibly annoying, because it only lets me remap player two controler by using the player 2 controller, for which it doesn't recognize button presses or the analog sticks. So I can't even play this game with friends, making this game utterly useless to me. The Acme controller works perfecty fine with other games such as GTA V, Dying Light and Injustice: Gods Among Us.
I can't even return it because Amazon won't accept opened CDs.
